Preview — Blaze Wyndham by Bertrice Small. I guess I will just have to re-read that one again to be sure. Paperbackpages. But don’t worry, Husband 1 is sure to inform her of important things like barren Joan of Valois’s voluntary retirement into a convent so Louis XII can marry a fertile princess and save France with a male heir.
Jun 28, Melanie Moviemavengal rated it really liked it. She lived on eastern Long Island for over 30 years. Blaze, the eldest of eight gorgeous daughters of the impoverished Lord Morgan, is betrothed to Edmund Wyndham, the Earl of Langford, who simply wants a fertile young wife to bear his heir.
There was a problem adding your email address. Her beauty is a mask for her barren character.
Her review might eventually be here. There were times when I was confused, in disbelief, or didn’t get the point and wanted to fast-forward. It was my flavor of the month, book-wise, and I’d been slowly chipping away at the page count via many a waiting room, bus ride, and lunch break. Overly sexual villain-woman’s speech: Blaze’s problems at court I think too were realistic, because back then, if you were a woman, you pretty much had to obey the men who were the authority over you, and even more so if it’s the king.
I have a feeling there is gonna be a lot of this: Ah, vintage romance novels. There are no discussion topics on this book yet. Now, this isn’t a romance in the sense of the more recently published ones, because the story takes place over a longer period of time, and there’s more than one main man, but it was an almost epic kind of historical novel with love scenes scenes which got mighty purple in places.
Blaze Wyndham by Bertrice Small – FictionDB
Probably one of my favourites of the old skool bodice rippers. The part with Henry Tudor was quite fascinating, I must admit, having recently watched the Tudors on HBO myself I quite liked to element of historical re-imagining. Her greatest passions were her family; Finnegan and Sylvester, the family cats; Nicki, the elderly cockatiel who whistles the NY Mets charge call; her garden; her work, and just life in general. She thinks and feels nothing of substance. BLAZE WYNDHAM is republican propaganda designed to fool women into thinking that marriage and kids is all they need out of life, and that birth control and sexual experimentation are foils of villainous harlots doomed to die for their treachery.
Every pregnancy is greeted with nervous hopes or smug contentment that the sacred wombs carry an infant with a penis attached. Their love will be complicated only by a sinister plot hatched by sister Delight–still longing for Anthony–and by a lascivious French girl.
How did 50 Shades get so popular? She is at her best when writing about the English and Scottish Courts of the 16th and 15th century. Blaze, a 15 year old virgin becomes this little horny sex goddess after one night of love making, yeah right.
Refresh and try again. It’s emall one of those viral fail videos, where the fail wyndnam is so perfectly executed that it almost, almost is an art onto itself.
It’s like the most mundane family-centric filler of every Regency bertricw about siblings all crammed into one book. Thank you, but noso I’ll be trolling my libraries and local used book stores if I want to read more. I love Betrice Samll and the characters that the creates! Her sisters get married. I’d never read any of Bertrice Small’s books before, so I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I’ve heard a lot of mixed reviews. It truly brought them to life.

Silly ‘historical fiction’ about woman in Tudor times The book gets really crazy in the middle when Edmund dies in a hunting accident and then newly widowed Blaze ends up becoming King Henry VII’s unwilling mistress. May 18, Raven Hart rated it it was amazing. But because he’s a busy man, she has to marry a proxy – his nephew, Anthony – who is so taken with Blaze and her fantastic Old Skool romance to the core, purple prose and all. This romance encompasses not just this couple but several of Blaze’s sisters.
Many years later, Blaze holds Henry Tudor’s hand while Boleyn is executed, then departs for home where her five children wait, as does Anthonythe only woman to survive Henry’s ardor. Jan 18, Elizabeth rated it it was ok Shelves: I bet she had a boy. The baby obsession really sucks. This will be my first Bertie. I was a bit surprised at how well I liked this book.
Crass stuff, but satisfying in its way–and sure to attract the usual Small audience.
